Today's been a nice, lazy day. It started out going off to the UU Church in New Madison to listen to dad preach about the Pharisee and the Publican. It lead to a wonderful discussion afterwards with the congregation. I like dad's parable sermons - good stuff. Like parables themselves, his sermons makes you think. We went to Wendy's for lunch and I had the Mandarin Chicken Salad (ok, and fries...)
After church, it was naptime. Leo sometimes sat with me, but mostly he played around the room. Around 3:30 mom came over and we popped popcorn and watched The Italian Job (the remake). Then I got online to discover my site was down. Grrr. So now I'm eating supper (just a mix & match of stuff - starting with peach Fruit on the Bottom yogurt - yum!) and listening to Rhapsody.
Speaking of the music listening bit, I've listened to the Von Blondies, but should probably check out their entire collection since the sampler had few songs. Also listened to Bowie and Kate Bush - got some good stuff there. Then the Ramones, where I discovered half of their songs all start the exact same way. But the music is catchy (and hey, you get to learn the tunes pretty easily ;-). The Dixie Chicks were next and I liked what I heard there (and I did think of hergrace when "Goodbye Earl" was playing). I think mom would really like them too. Just enough "pickin' and grinnin'" to satisfy her Bluegrass Gospel love. I'm now going through the two Hothouse Flowers albums I found on Rhapsody (a group I first heard on Lovejoy and have been moderately interested in since). After them it will be The Cramps then The White Stripes. I can't remember now who suggested the Cramps (drake57?), but I know that elsaf likes The White Stripes.
I'm still taking suggestions, so if you can think of someone you think I should give a listen to, let me know and I'll seek them out.
Anyhoo, back to growling at InMotionHosting. OK, so this is the first downtime I've ever had with them, but it's still frustrating.
